Have you ever dreamt of killing either Gary Cole or Gary Busey? Well Io Interactive is prepared to give you everything you’ve ever wanted. 

The developers of the recently released Hitman have announced that either Gary Cole or Gary Busey will be the target of an upcoming contract to be released this summer, and the fans get to vote on which actor takes the fall. Check out the video below.

The hilarious video has both actors argue why they believe they should be killed by players come this summer update. Gary Cole is described as an “expert thespian and all-around a-hole.” He “doesn’t care if you vote for him or not. In fact, he doesn’t care about you at all. Because he’s better than you.” Gary Busey, on the other hand, is “ready for the role of a lifetime: your target. If you’re ready for a vicious, intimate, perplexing fight to the death, choose Busey.”

Head on over to ChooseYourHit.com to cast your vote for which Gary you’d rather kill. 

Hitman was released earlier this month on March 11. It is the first title in the series to feature an episodic release schedule. The batch of content, featuring the prologue and Paris missions, is out now. More missions, contracts and locations are promised monthly throughout the rest of the year. In our review we called Hitman a “very promising” release and look forward to seeing what Square Enix and developer Io Interactive add to the title in the future. 


Quick Take

Personally, I think this is hilarious and exactly the kind of content Hitman needs to spice up a potentially worn out formula. The smugness of Gary Cole and the absolutely insanity of Gary Busey results in the perfect merger of advertising and tie in content. I’d love to see more of this in the future, both from Hitman as well as other games.
